Why Trump’s North Korea Success Is Example of “Genuis Level Diplomacy”

It has often been said that Ronald Reagan won the Cold War without firing a shot. Even as his political contemporaries and media pundits in the 1980’s mocked Mr. Reagan for what they dismissed as an overly-simplistic approach to world affairs, time and time again Reagan proved them wrong and in the end was the man most responsible for freeing hundreds of millions from the tyranny of an oppressive Soviet regime.
